my A6-3500+asrock A75M-itx system in the ISK310 case (does eskro see my ocz?
If you see from the pic the connector from the power source sticks out and actually interferes with 3rd party heat sink, I end up putting back the amd cooler for my a6-3500 system for testing. The PS fan when spinning low is ok noise-wise but when spin up does produce some amount of noise. Because of these 2 issues I'll probably get a pico PS and swap out the stock PS for the 310 case.
If you've read some of my posts in beer's A6-pack thread, here, you can see the shuriken rev B. with the asrock A75M mb fits perfectly in the ISK300 case even with the drive cage installed.
Unfortunately for the h67m motherboard the cpu socket is off to the left and a little more in front, so the cage won't fit any more , anyway removing it probably gives better airflow.
Here's my i3 2125+asrock h67m system in a ISK300-65 case, using a 90W power brick.
I measured the power usage using kill-a-watt for the same system using the pico power brick and the ISK310-150 PS, you can see significant difference.
